battery light comes on

I own a 1998 Ford Windstar with less than 45,000 miles. I only drive it once a week. The problem is the battery light comes on as I am driving. It varies in length of time it stays on - sometimes only a few seconds other times it stays on for a couple of minutes.
And sometimes it doesn't come on at all. Is this happening because I only drive it once a week? Or is something going that needs to be replaced? Thanks for any help.

It would need to be confirmed with a VAT tester but is sounds like the alternator is fixin to quit.
